Russia Suspends Adoptions by American Families

Moscow has suspended the adoption of Russian children by American families until the two countries sign an agreement on how the well-being of the children is safeguarded.

The decision, announced by spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Nesterenko, was taken after an adopted Russian boy was rejected and sent back all alone to Russia by his adopted American mother, according to RT.

According to RIA Novosti, the source said the embassy "continues to work with Russian officials, and a [U.S.] delegation will pay a visit to Russia next week to discuss adoption issues and conduct talks on the bilateral arrangement of the problem."

Russia suspended from April 9 the activities on its territory of the U.S. child adoption agency World Association for Children and Parents after a U.S. adoptive mother put her 7-year-old son on a plane and sent him back to Moscow alone.

He brought a note in which the adoptive mother, Torry Hansen from Tennessee, said she would not take care of him any longer because he is "mentally unstable."
